In this segment we are going to “Install Plex Media Server on Docker for Raspberry Pi All Models”.

>/ What is Plex Media Server ?

Plex is a client-server media player system and software suite comprising two main components. The Plex Media Server desktop application runs on Windows, macOS and Linux-compatibles including some types of NAS devices.
The server desktop application organizes video, audio and photos from a user’s collections and from online services, enabling the players to access and stream the contents. There are also official clients available for mobile devices, smart TVs, and streaming boxes, a web app, and Plex Home Theater (no longer maintained), as well as many third-party alternatives.
